Abstract:

Hines shows how a newspaper, and the world, struggled to find and report the truth of the most disastrous maritime accident in history. The London Daily Telegraph, the largest circulating newspaper in the world at the time of the sinking of the Titanic, was charged with the task of relaying what exactly had happened to the luxury liner. But with false reports abounding and no access to survivors, that task was easier said than done.
